Ocean Navigator is a dedicated magazine that focuses on offshore boating. Earlier in my career, as vice president of sales and marketing for cruising sailboat builder Pacific Seacraft, I became aware of what a unique perspective that Ocean Navigator provides for their readers. I’ve been a long time subscriber and look forward to each new issue as there are always a great number of interesting ideas and timely information; it helps to keep me sharp! Their readership audience is experienced and knowledgeable – savvy sailors – and each issue has a great collection of timely articles to read. In July of 2013 I was contacted by the editor, Tim Queeney, who while looking over the schedule for the Baltimore TrawlerFest, saw I was presenting a seminar called “Dialing in your trawler,” and asked if I might like to write a story on this subject for Ocean Navigator. Honored and humbled I wrote my first piece including a bunch of practical tips for the Power Voyaging column. Tim requested more and the “Dialing in your trawler” series continues to be a productive creative outlet where I can share some of the great ideas I have learned while boating with my clients. If you are not already a subscriber to Ocean Navigator I would encourage you to sign up. www.oceannavigator.com is an informative website with archived articles, blogs, current events and classes.

Jeff Merrill is pleased to continue writing his popular “Dialing-In” your Trawler Series for the pages of Ocean Navigator magazine in 2015 and flattered with the announcement posted below and on the Ocean Navigator website. To read all of Jeff’s articles in the series go to the Trawler Lifestyle section of JMYS.com or the Power Voyaging section of OceanNavigator.com.
